Dreamcast First Code!

February 1st 2001

On the left is my PC, JubJub and it's bits and pieces, running the cygwin cross-compiler and stuff for SH4 and ARM, editplus2 and DCUploader2. On the right, the Dreamcast running Marcus Comstedt's serialslave and my first dreamcast program, which just dumped a big-ass bitmap into display memory and quit.

Between them is a monstrosity of a serial cable from Tototek (who were very helpful, take payment via paypal and did a nice job for me). The cable (which I'll take piccy of) is sort of half an RGB SCART lead, and half a DB-9 serial cable, with a mass of epoxy in the middle. It works a treat up to 115200 though, so fair enough.
